Treating mental health in the community

Aย review of the quality of evidence available on the effectiveness of different community approaches to mental health.

This reportย finds that, overall, there is a worrying lack of high-quality evidence to guide community work on mental health. However, there is some evidence that community-centred approaches, which work with the grain of local people and their needs, have a positive impact. It also find that there is no evidence that community-based approaches, in which existing projects are simply reproduced in different communities, have a positive impact.

The report also considers the policy implications for mental health work.
